Subject Re: [Important] Lots of 2.8.0 commits are in branch-2 only
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2015 19:14:57 GMT
Tx for your comments.

We decided to cut the branch mid last month with an intention of locking down feature set
and have realistic progress towards getting out an RC.

We had elaborate discussions on the feature set for 2.8.0 last couple of months. As much as
is possible, I’ll avoid resetting all of that simply because few committers overlooked pushing
fixes into 2.8.

And yes, the plan is indeed to cut an RC around this week, please see the 2.8 thread from

 We all simply got busy with few very critical blockers on 2.6 / 2.7. I just pushed out a
2.7.2 RC yesterday, 2.6.3 voting is in progress, so on to 2.8.0 again.
